    Resort manager embezzles 2m from Woodbourne Estates resort in Bahamas

    Too many owners just want to vacation and have no clue. Owners do not want to deal with even thinking about the financials, they don't even bother to vote. This is the danger and makes it easy for those with ulterior motives to take advantage. Been there/done that.

    Work hours question

    Unions have become more rare guessing, they served a good purpose in the beginning. Think too they came to be abused and used to protect those who shouldn't be. One place in town will fire anyone who even dreams of union formation secretly.
